Hanging of the Greens! Join us on December 6 immediately after the worship service at Creston to decorate the church and fellowship hall for Christmas. A potluck brunch will follow decorating.


Newly elected church officers will be installed in the services on January 3, 2016.


Stewardship for – Advent I - Luke 19:31: “If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.’” Consider the faithfulness of that man who owned the donkey and colt. All he needed to hear was, “The Lord has need of it” - and he willingly gave. The Lord has given each of us various callings in life (in our homes, in the Church, and in the communities we live in). In each calling we have good work to do which comes from the Lord's hand. The Lord has need of us in each calling. How is He calling you to generous giving in each of your vocations?


There will be an Advent Pot Luck Dinner before the last advent service on December 16 at 5:45pm.


Visitors: We do collect offerings during our worship services. While we believe this is a chance for each believer to be a good steward of the gifts they have received from God, we do not expect you to give an offering while you are our guest.
